Monochromatic-Lauren's Dirty Challenge!

I really am trying to use up paper and ribbon that will be retiring. I love the Bali Breeze paper and had some scraps sitting on my desk, so that is where I started with this card. This is the card for Lauren's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge: use a monochromatic color scheme. My card base is textured Pomegranate (the card is a 4 1/4 square). The dp is from Bali breeze and I matted those pieces with Rose Red-a great compliment to the Pomegranate. I stamped the flower from A Beautiful Thing on the polka dot dp. I knew I needed a sentiment and decided I had to go with black ink, otherwise I thought it would get lost on the card. Make a Wish is from PTI (limitless labels). Again, I pulled the stitching out of the pomegranate ribbon, tied a bow and done. Well not quite, I felt the card need some bling and another bit of black to balance out the sentiment. So I punched a 1/4 inch circle from black cs and stuck my pink rhinestone brads through the center. I also added some sparkle with my Sakura Gliltter pen to the dots on the stamped flowers and on the sentiment. Take a closer look here! I'm getting a head start on Aug. BRAK's. Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to try and pack while my sister and all the kids are having some quiet time! Hugs,
